Have you ever seen something and knew that you had to possess? Well that is how we are with the Quilt we are about to show you. It is the "Halloween Baltimore" designed by Pearl P. Pereira of P3 Designs. It was the talk of Houston and we searched for it. Thanks to FabShop Network we located the designer, we called and couldn’t wait for the patterns to arrive. The fabric choice took close to three days. The next question arrived as to whether we should do it as the designer had needleturned or fuse it.
Time constraints made our decision easy and fuse it was. We wanted to have it for our show season. Margy traced and fused the original design on parchment paper as we awaited the backgrounds we chose from Kaufman fabrics. As they grew on the paperwork we were thrilled with the look. Here are a few close ups for you to view. The owls are too cute and we love the fabric that makes them look feathery. This next one is the most difficult but it was done perfectly, if you worked on it one step at a time. Sometimes we overwhelm ourselves when it is totally not that bad. Just sit down, fuse and sew. Margy is good at that.
There are also easier ones that help in getting this project done for this Halloween. The center is completed at the end and by that time, you are so experienced, it comes easier. The next to last picture is of one of the easier blocks and the last one is of the center. We do have kits available and it can be purchased as a set or a set of the patterns alone. Or you can purchase it as a BOM (Block of the Month) Just give a call or stop by and see it in person. Yes, I am afraid this is on my list of things to do. It is a quilt I must do and own. We are happy to share with you the tips on how we did it. Margy, also, did the quilting and she hit it on the nose.The center appears to be a large snow dome with bats and witches and our personal favorite candy corns floating around. Pretty cool addition to our Halloween stuff, wouldn’t you say.
